5 Stars: Majestic Pure Natural Dead Sea Mud Mask Facial Cleanser

Image
I have really sensitive skin and I'm always on the look-out for skin products I can use.  I had read some articles recently about products from the dead sea being good for the skin.  This mask from Majestic Pure is going for $14.45 right now.
The mask looks and feels exactly like clay.  The directions are to spread a thick layer on the face and neck and then wait 5 minutes for it to dry.  Then wash off and moisturize.  It took my mask about 10 minutes to dry completely.
When it was on, my skin felt cool and a little tingly sometimes.  It was really to spread on.


Once I washed it off, my skin felt very soft.  It felt like I had moisturized even though I hadn't yet.  I will definitely be adding this to my weekly face routine.


5 Stars: Pure Body Naturals Aromatherapy Top 6 Essential Sampler Oils Kit

Image
I received an oil diffuser for Christmas and I am so in love with it.  I use it everyday.  Since I'm new to the diffuser, I wanted a few oils to try out.  This package from Pure Body Naturals, which is going for $15.15 right now on Amazon, has a good selection.

The set contains lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree, sweet orange and lemongrass.  Each bottle is therapeutic grade and is 10ml.
Each of the oils smells amazing.  They are the perfect size for trying out scents that I like.  I have been using the lavender every night to go to sleep.  It makes our room smell so wonderful.

4 Stars: Work Leather Gloves, for Men & Women

Image
Living in the country requires lots of work outside and a staple of country life is a good pair of gloves.  I got these gloves by Roman Jobs on Amazon for $9.97.  They are a great pair of gloves.
The gloves are made of unlined leather.  There is some elastic on the top side to help them fit better.
They come to about 1.5 inches below my wrist, so they provide good protection.
I gave these 4 stars instead of 5 because the description says they should fit a man or a woman.  The gloves fit my hand comfortably, but my husband was not able to fit his hands into them.  Also, they have an odd smell to them to rubs off onto my skin.  I'm sure it's the leather condition used in the making of the gloves, but it made me nauseous the first few times I wore them.

5 Stars: Inverted Umbrella Double Layer Windproof UV Protection Sun&Rain Car Reverse folding Umbrellas

Image
I have received so many compliments on this umbrella.  It's on Amazon for $16.99 right now.
I usually carry one of those mini-umbrellas that fits under my seat.  I'm glad I got this one.  It is much bigger, but that's means more protection from the rain.  The umbrella is black on the top and has a red flower on the bottom side.
The biggest difference between this umbrella and my normal ones is that it is an inverted design.   That means that when folded up, the bottom becomes the outside.  This collects all the moisture and holds it within the umbrella so there isn't a puddle left underneath the umbrella when it's folded up inside.

5 Stars: Chef Remi 3-IN-1 Avocado Slicer With Knife, Pitter, Peeler And Scoop

Image
My husband loves avocados.  He eats 2 to 3 a day!  A couple of years ago I bout a metal avocado slicer called the shark.  He didn't really like it because if you slipped just a little bit, he would cut himself.  I've used Chef Remi products previously and decided to get their avocado slicer.  It's going for $10.95 on Amazon right now.
The whole thing is made of plastic, except for the pitter side.  The knife end easily cuts the avocado in half, but since it's plastic, you can't cut yourself with it.  You press the pitter side into the seed of the avocado and it makes quick work of pulling it out.  The oval side runs between the skin and the meat of the avocado and slices it at the same time.   This slicer is easy to use and does a great job on avocados.  It's also dishwasher safe, so clean up is a snap.

5 Stars: Chef Remi Cooking Thermometer Now with Backlight

Image
One of my passions is cooking.  I recently dropped something on my digital cooking thermometer and needed to replace it.  This thermometer from Chef Remi looked promising.  It is going for $14.95 which is a pretty good deal.

The thermometer is very accurate and easy-to-use.  You stick the probe in whatever you are checking the temp on, press the on/off button and it reads within 10 seconds.  I used my analog thermometer and compared the temps in my water glass and they were the same.

The thermometer also comes in a plastic tube that it can be stored in.  This is helpful since I tend to toss things into some of drawers.

5 Stars: Verified Forskolin Made In Usa,Forskolin For Weight Los,and Diet Pills Garcinia Cambogia,Garcinia Cambogia Extract

Image
One of my constant battles is weight loss.  I eat low-carb and work out when I can, but I'm always looking for ways to boost my weight loss.  I've heard about taking Forskolin and Gracinia Cambogia to help with appetite suppression and increase metabolism.  I found this set on Amazon for $39.97.  It's a one month supply and it's a lot cheaper than other products like Plexus.



I've taken other supplements for Nature Touch and I like their quality.  The pills are capsules with the herbs crushed up inside them.  They are easy to swallow.

I've only been taking them for about a week, but I have noticed a reduction in my appetite.  So much so, that many days I don't feel like eating dinner.  I haven't noticed any weight loss yet, but I think it will probably take more than a month.  Unlike other herbal supplements that I've taken in the past, these don't make me burp up the flavor of the herb.  (Valerian root is horrible at this.)

5 Stars: Valentines Day Gift Set for Her-Birthday Gift Set for Women-Best for Valentine's Day Gifts for Girlfriend- for Daughters-for Mom-Bundle Of Body Lotion & Body Wash Kit by Nature Touch

Image
I'm always looking for easy gift sets to give out at the last minute.  Like when I find out that tomorrow is a coworkers birthday and I forgot to get them a gift.  This shower gel and lotion set is perfect for that situation.  The set is $21.99 on amazon right now which is comparable to buying a set from Bath & Body.
The set comes in a black organza bag so it is ready to give as a present. Each bottle is 8 ounces.




The shower gel is a nice thick consistency and has nice big bubbles.  It has a soft sweet scent that isn't overwhelming.


The lotion has a smooth white texture and rubs in easily without an oily feeling.  It smells like flowers and grapefruit.  Like the gel, the scent is not overwhelming and very subtle.

4 Stars: FTLL 3D VR Virtual Reality Headset Glasses VR Box Goggles for iphone 7/7 plus iPhone 5 5s 6/ 6s plus Samsung Galaxy S4/5/6/7/C5/7/A3/7/5/9 Edge Note 4/5/6/7 LG G5 for Android and IOS

I have tried several VR glasses out recently and this pair from amazon ranks in the top.  They are sturdy and fairly easy to use.  Right now, they are $28.99 which is way cheaper than other name brand ones.  After trying out both high-end, name brand ones and off brand ones like these, I don't see the point in paying a high price for the name.  The technology is the same in all of them.

These VR glasses work by downloading and opening a VR app on your phone.  The phone is put into a flip down box on the glasses.  This set has suction cups to hold the phone in place.  Close the door and enjoy the experience.


These are comfortable to wear and have adjustable straps to fit perfectly and not fall off.  The distance between the lens can be adjusted as well as the focus.


I gave these 4 stars because the suction cups did not attached to my phone.  I have a Galaxy S7 Active so the back is textured.  Also, some VR apps require the screen be touched to start the experience, but it is hard to t…
